Annual Governance Review Process


The Head of Internal Audit, Anti-Fraud and Assurance submitted a report which was presented by Mrs A Salt (Corporate Governance and Assurance Manager) (who attended the meeting virtually) providing an update with regard to the Annual Governance Review (AGR) process that had been determined and used to influence and assist in the preparation of the Council’s Statutory Annual Governance Statement for 2021/22.


It was noted that the Governance and Assurance Framework and the preparation of the AGS were key responsibilities of this Committee and the proposed timescales for the review process were outlined within the report.  It had been assumed that the timescales for the publication of the Statutory Accounts in 2022 would follow a similar pattern to those in 2021 subject to any changes/impact which may occur due to the ongoing impact of the Covid 19 pandemic.




(i)            That the Annual Governance Review Process for 2021/22 be noted; and


(ii)          That further reports be submitted relating to the Review process for 2021/22 and on how the Review would be used to inform the development of the Annual Governance Statement.
